Hair Color & Style: Viv has the coolest hair to date. A portion of left side and right side are shaved off, while the rest of it is shoulder blade length. At the roots, it starts as a creamy light blonde, which is their natural color, and fades into a bright blue. They can pull their hair back into a ponytail or pull it all to one side, depending on their mood. However, on the road, it’s mostly pulled out of their face in a ponytail, for ease and comfort.
Eyes: They has dark brown eyes that almost appear black in most lighting. Only direct light into their eye shows its true color as a rich chocolate-like color. The shape of their eyes is a soft round shape that can seem to change based on their facial expressions.
Clothing/Accessories: Because of Viv’s gender identity, they have a lot of clothing. Their favorite however is their travel outfit, just because of the fact it’s so simple. They wears a white short sleeved shirt with the words “You Suck” in a pastel pink bubbly font and a cute little heart. Then, to mess with the idea of gendered clothing, they wears a pink high waisted skirt over a pair of pleather pants. Of course, if it’s too hot for all that, they goes for cargo shorts and patterned tights instead. They always has a large hooded sweatshirt on them at all times, in case they gets cold. Or for more extreme levels of cold, they have a thick winter peacoat as well as faux fur lined pants. They loves their hat the most though. It’s a black snapback with pink studs on it, two on top for horns and the rest around the rim of the hat like teeth.
General Appearance: Viv is a tan young adult who obviously has a lot of filling out to do. They is very much the lanky teen stereotype, appearing to be mostly skin and bones with little substance besides a diet of pizza pockets and soda. This is very much so not the case. Tall and lithe, they strives for a toned body, partly because it’s what the company says everyone wants to look at. They really just enjoys looking nice from themselves though.
Due to years of acting, they is able to change most of their entire appearance based on how they holds themselves. Most of the time, they has a very confident and relaxed posture, belaying the smug attitude that they holds. They walk with a lax sort of pace when in public but they’re actually more confident in private, when they don’t have to hide their abrasive personality.
Their hands are probably the only part of their body that remains “honest”. They have a habit of talking animatedly with their hands, even if the topic isn’t anything interesting at all. They pick at their sleeves when they’re nervous, Staying true to their ability to screw with gender norms, they loves painting their nails, mostly in cute patterns and neon colors.
Hometown: Tiensee Town, South Godai
Personality: Years of intense training as an idol recruit and putting up with paparazzi have created a person that is honest yet insincere. Outwardly, Viv seems to be a very honest person, able to tell anyone anything with a bright smile. They’re so sweet and easy going around strangers, quickly warming up to people. They’s able to charm most people with a smile and a wink. However, this isn’t really the case 100% of the time. It’s a clever ruse used by Viv to pander to the masses of fans and keep people from attempting to hurt them.
In reality, Viv is a sarcastic ball of loud opinions and bright, obnoxious colors. They only has this strange two-faced personality because of the image they has to keep up. In company that won’t tear their dreams apart, they’re extremely snarky, unable to keep their opinion to themselves or to not use the most condescending tone while doing so. Viv especially doesn’t like social interactions, even when they have to for press conferences, concerts or other jobs. In fact, they have ran away from conferences before they began simply because they “wasn’t feeling talking to the vultures today.” They feels that forced interactions only make their life harder than it needs to be.
It’s only for defense though. Vivian’s so used to people only getting close to them for their money, fame or associates that they feel that the only way to stay safe to ward off others with acidic tones and haughty mannerisms. They don’t particularly find this form of lying wrong, they compare it to the bright, face-like patterns on the thorax of a Spinarak. It’s to protect themselves from harm, a threat display to show that they would not make a good snack.
If one does manage to make it past the thorny exterior, they’ll find an extremely caring individual. They really doesn’t like to burden others but will easily drop everything they're doing if one of those lucky few has any sort of issues.

- Born in Tiensee Town, Vivian wasn’t always Viv. They started as Xavier, the youngest son in a family nine strong. Of course, they were the baby of the family, the seventh child born, due to their twin brother, Vergil, being born first. As a result, they were spoiled by parents and siblings alike. Especially their oldest brother, Abraham, who cared for them and the rest of the children when their parents were working the family owned hotel, The Summer Refresh Resort.
This resulted in the younger sibling clinging to Abraham, even when he left for Shiroshore to work as a manager for a popular entertainment company, Cloudshine Productions or CSP for short. He also took Yoh, who wanted to become a rockstar and sing on stage. Abraham figured that this would be an excellent opportunity for all three of them. They packed their bags and left for the large city, awed by the sheer difference from their hometown.
It didn’t take long for them to settle in, however. Abraham enrolled both Yoh and Xavier into a private school, along with Yoh’s added study in music and dance with CSP. They both flourished under the careful, thorough tutelage, even though Xavier had a tendency to talk back to teachers, most of the time with due cause.
Most of their teachers had a tendency to look down on them and their brother simply because they weren’t born into wealth, something they were not going to take lying down. Because they had to be so acidic in tone around teachers, they didn’t have many friends that attended their school, most of the other children were too busy fawning over their expensive clothing and high class lunches.
At 10, Xavier showed interest in becoming one of CSP’s idol stars, a jack of all trades sort of celebrity that can do anything and everything. Yoh, who was 14 at the time, spoke highly of the training program and a week later, they were in training to become an idol alongside their older brother.
Training was rigorous and often left both children spent by day’s end. It was worth it however, and at age 15, Xavier was deemed ready to enter the realm of stardom. They would take small jobs, background actors or small parts, back-up dancing if they were really lucky. Anything to spread their name through the entertainment community. Which was unsurprisingly, really difficult. Through these jobs, it was here when Viv met a vast variety of show Pokemon. They loved how soft and sweet they all were, most of them bred and trained to have softer personalities. Especially compared to the fiery, opinionist Pokemon that used to work at their parent’s hotel.
This was also around the time when Xavier began to question their gender, not feeling all too comfortable under the full male label. When they confessed their feelings to Yoh, the older male decided it was time to research the heck out of all this. Abraham also got in on this and between the three of them, they found a pretty solid answer. Xavier is genderfluid, a gender identity in which they switches between genders. With an official name change, Xavier Parker became Vivian Parker. They adopted the pronoun “they”, easily making the change internally because it felt correct, not as forced as “he”. At first, they figured that they should be near androgynous, short hair, wider eyes, all that. But they later became okay with their more male leanings physically. It was how they identified, not how they looked, that mattered.
Because of their gender, they are able to play more roles and be comfortable in them, increasing the amount of jobs they were able to get. This caused CS to take them and turn Vivian into their star idol, a jack of all trades star that can be used for any job. They became popular nearly instantly after this, due to their mysterious gender and overall demure yet confident demeanor. With Abraham as their manager, they are able to mostly direct the questions away from their original gender and all that nonsense. However, few have gone to great lengths to attempt to figure it out.
It was around this time when they became the two faced sort of person they are today. It started with a few of Viv’s classmates wanting to hang out and talk. At the time, they were just getting comfortable in their new identity and foolishly accepted their offer. They took many pictures as they hung out, telling them it was to commemorate hanging out finally after wanting to for so long. A day later, they find that the pictures had been posted on the internet, labeling them a freak and a mistake. A whole blog was made to insult, criticize and belittle the idol. This caused Vivian to close up emotionally, before appearing to re-open. Only they’ve carefully crafted a mask of the perfect idol. Years of acting lessons and a general affinity for playing a part mean they don’t drop the mask unless they’re completely frazzled.
Viv’s fans actually enjoy the ambiguity and the shifting roller coaster of genders that they showcase. Many of their fans are off the binary scale themselves, identifying with them because they’re out and proud and working in their dream job. It’s motivational to say the least. The haters on the other hand are ruthless. They’re the ones that hound Viv with sick threats of violence and hateful words. Most of them are closeminded trolls that are afraid of what someone like them being popular would mean.
However, recently, Viv hasn’t been feeling all that great, mostly due to the stresses that are put on them by the company and the paparazzi. Until recently, they’ve wandered from job to job, where now they’re the star of an up and coming television adaptation of a popular comic book series. They feel lost, like all this learning and study and hardship was for naught. They feel like a change of pace would be for the best. But with a recognizable face, how can an Idol get any sort of self discovery done!?
